IT looks like Michael Healy Rae and Martin Ferris formed some sort of pact at the Office Chair Racing  event on The Mall this afternoon.

The lighthearted fun, organised by Tralee Chamber Alliance in aid of St Vincent de Paul, was lit up by a ‘coalition’ between the two Kerry TDs.

In one of the races, Michael got off his chair and pushed the Sinn Féin Deputy at great speed to the finish line.

It was a fun moment in an event which is proving very popular in its second year. In an earlier race, the two were joined by Fianna Fáil councillor and general election candidate, John Brassil and Labour councillor Graham Spring as you can see in the video below.

I’m afraid Cllr Brassil didn’t read the rules properly as he turned his chair around and got an unfair advantage over his opponents, but was duly disqualified. He’ll need that ruthless streak in a few months time!

The final was won by Paul Keane from Denis Moriarty Civil Engineering and we’ll have a video and photos tomorrow.

Scroll down for video with commentary from Mark Leen…
